Afev is a national association recognized of general interest since 1991. It mobilizes thousands of students every year to support young people with academic difficulties and create links within working-class neighborhoods. By fighting against educational and social inequalities, they act for a more just and supportive society through 3 programs: student mentoring, volunteering in Civic Service dedicated to educational actions and colocations to solidarity projects (KAPS). Present in 350 neighborhoods, organizing more than one million hours of solidarity commitment per year, Afev has become the first network of student intervention in working-class neighborhoods.
At the same time, the solidarity engagement platforms, located in partner universities, promote the solidarity commitment of students and the link between university, students and territory.
Afev complements its field action with advocacy work by conducting awareness campaigns among the general public: Day of Refusal of School Failure, Observatory of Youth Engagement, Observatory of The Social Responsibility of Universities, Lab’Afev, ZEP Blog…
